Red wool coat


I’m getting a little (ok a lot) behind on blogging my sewing projects, so I’ll try to catch up some! Here’s a  gorgeous wool coat I made my daughter at the beginning of fall.


The pattern is called the Houndstooth Coat 11/2013 #136 by BurdaStyle. I sewed it in size 116 from this vibrant red melton wool which I picked up from NYFashionCenterFabrics. Their melton is high quality, thick, and gorgeous.

For the lining I used a juicy cranberry pink satin from Hobby Lobby. The color contrast looks great with the red melton!


I’m pretty much in love with this coat and red is such a classic color on little girls ❤

  1. Oh wow, this is really gorgeous!! And I agree, a red wool coat is absolutely classic on a little girl. Reminds me of the classic children’s literature I grew up with. Pink lining!! Perfect!

  2. Lovely bright red wool coat– sewn with lots of motherly LOVE! Photo shoot is FAB! Like Inder stated: absolutely classic plus the doubled breasted front is chic for a young girl. Red is such a versatile color for a winter coat — brighten your day! Easy to add any color of hat, scarf, mittens, for a stylish look. THANKS for sharing. Sarah in Minneapolis
